  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup THM Baking Blend or MamaShire Baking Blend
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a muffin pan with coconut oil spray.
  2. Place all ingredients in blender** or food processor and blend until thoroughly combined and squash is mixed in well.

Notes

*If using frozen squash, thaw before using and drain off excess water.
**Homemade sweetener = 1 cup non-GMO erythritol + 1 teaspoon Now Better Stevia

**I use a Vita-Mix blender, if you don’t have a strong blender you may want to use a food processor instead.
